Plattsmouth People Successful in Their
Attempt to Have a Time.
A Cood Ball Came in Which Our
Boys Were Victorious.
A Number of Picnics-
From Thursday's Daily.
Plattsmouth held its own yesterday
with other cities in celebrating the 4th of
July, the day which we all celebrate and
which is invariably marked with more
enthusiasm than any other.
At early morning yesterday the sound
of the cannon was heard breaking forth
the news in its booming. Almost as
soon the b"3'3 were on the alert with their
lire-crackers and torpedoes, and noises
from the different explosions could be
heard from every quarter.
As soon as the sun had risen nearly all
who were to take any active part in the
day's celebration were on the streets
making preparations for the day. The
firemen, who deserve a word of praise
for their efforts to make everything work
smoothly and furrish whatever amuse
ment they could among themselves in
the way of athletic performances, were
seen making preparations for the races
which were to take place on the streets.
The old veterans wore on hand as soon
as the excitement commenced, and were
apparently much enthused at the sound
of the old cannon as it threw out a report
which rattled the house's, reminding them
of the years which they spent in the
great struggle. That, with the music
furnished by the fife and drnm band,
in which there were men who played
during the war, furnished them all with
a strong recollection of the times long
gone by.
The day, although very warm, was
pleasant, not a cloud being visible, and
is everything else was as favorable as
one could expect considering all, en
couraged all interested and the amuse
ment? of the day were commenced by a
procession in which several of the busi
ness houses of the city were represented
and the fire department took part, after
which the races by the different hose
teams took plac?. The following Is the
time made by each team, running one
hundred yards nnd coupling on the hy-
drant on the corner of Fourth and Main
Rescues, of the 4th ward, 28 seconds.
F. E. Whites, of the 2d ward 3o J sec
onds. F. M. Kichey, of the 3d ward, 30 sec
onds. The races occupied the time until about
noon. After noon the street cars and all
the vehicles available in the city were
crowded until the time for the ball game
which commenced at 3:30.
As the B. & M. band accepted an invi
tation from Louisville, the city was left
destitute of a band, which had a tendency
to deaden the enthusiasm. It is surpris
ing a city of this size let their baud leave
and render their services to some other
town because of financial trouble. They
received the price they asked for where
they played, but for some reason enough
money could not be sealed up to secure
them here.
About 1 o'clock, or shortly after, a
large crowd had assembled at the fair
grounds, the place chosen for the after
noon amusements.
The inyocation of Divine blessing was
performed by Iev. II. B. Burgess, of
the Episcopal church of this city, after
which the Declaration of Independence
was read in a pleasing style by Mr. M.
D. Polk.
Mr. O. II. Ballou, of Omaha, delivered
a suitable oration in an able niauner, of
which we have heard considerable com
ment of praise, after which a choir of a
good number of singers, under the leader
ship of Mr. Mutz, rendered a few selec
tions in the finest stylp, which were appre
ciated by all.
The large crowd amused themselves
on the picnic grounds enjoying the cool
breezes under the fine shade trees until
the time which was set for the commence
ment of the base ball game arrived,
when the majority left for the ball
As the day was almost warm enough
to torture the players, the circumstances
were a little unfavorable for them,
but, without making a single ex
ception, played remarkably well nnd
worked hard for victory. Until the last
inning the clubs worked along steadily
to about a tie and victory for either side
could not be counted on with much as
surrance. They played along without a
word of dispute aid with as much ease
as professional trains. No change was
made in the players excepting in the first
base man, Mr. IT. Chapin filling that
position this time. As no noise or pro
faulty from any player was heard, and
as no such misconduct was noticeable a
at the previous game here, all thoroughly
enjoyed it apparently by the enthusiasm
which was so noticeable in the large
crowd. If it had not been for the man
ufactured dissatisfaction shown by one
or two of the. Council Bluffs players at
their game here a short time ago, the
Plattsmouth 'boys would, Ave feel quite
confident, have won the game. But yes
terday not a word of dispute arose be
tween the two clubs, and in every way
the Lincoln boys showed themselves to be
gentlemen. Great credit is due the home
team for their success as they have had very
little practice together, and they also are
entitled to a word of praise for their as
sistance in helping out the celebration as
admirably as they did. A large number
who would have gone away somewhere
else to spend the 4th, remained at home
to see the game. Our boys stole a couple
of bases in good style and some very
fine fielding was done on both sides. Mr.
AY. Chambers, as an umpire, proved him
se!f efficient, but as he took his position
behind the pitcher several times, he
missed a couple of fine tip fouls caught
by Mr. James Patterson, and gave a de
cision against our club, for which no
blame could be attached to him.
On a whole the game was played in as
good style as though all were profes
sionals, and the spectators were all well
satisfied with the afternoon's amusement.
At this game considerable more interest
was stirred up and In the future we are
quite certain that oitizens will appreciate
the good talent in our midst and much
more and larger attendances will be the
result. The grand stand which is now
well covered, furnishes a great conven
ience. Mr. Morris O'Rourk, the fat man of
the home team, should train his form
down to a lighter weight as the pitcher,
if he is not an accurate man, finds
great difficulty in working a wide
enoucdi curve to pass him, but if he
is willing to act as back-stop occasion
ally, he can get his bas without a bat.

After the amusements of the day were
finished a very fine display of fire works
on high school hill and in various direc
tions was witnessed by a large crowd of
spectators on Main street, and until 9 or
10 o'clock th sky-rockets could be seen
from a hundred different places. Al
though on a small scale, they were very
fine and the sight much appreciated.
A large number of visitors were in
the city yesterday and the streets were
crowded all day.
C. E. Alverson, a man about 27 or 28
years ot age who cam; from Colorado a
short time ago and who has been in the
employ of Mr. Win. Neville of this city
since his arrival, driving team, celebrated
a little too much Wednesday and got in
a helpless condition. At night he S2
cured a room in the Goos hous.i in com
pany with two other men. II-j went to
the window after the other fellows were
asleep some time and after sitting there
for awhile, rolled out and fell
to the ground, a distance of about fifty
feet. Some one in another room near by
heard the fall and went down stairs to
ascertain what the trouble was. As the
man had no control of himself, being
unconscious at the time being under the
influence of spts. fi nmtnti, lie was not
killed, and it is supposed that is the
only tiling that saved his life. Dr.
Schildknecht was summoned immediate
ly, but upon examination it was
discovered that no bones had been broken,
lie is injured internally, but it is thought
he will recover in a short time. After he
was picked up and carrietl int the house
he awoke and not until then, and ho
wanted to know what the3 were trying
to do with him. Us walked to his room
after they succeeded in getting him into
the house. The window Is in the back
part of the building and 'm the third
story. lie fell into a narrow alley-way.
Ceneral Harrison Promises to
the Republican Candidate.
Indian AroLis, July 4. The notification
committee representing the late republi
can convention today officially informed
General Harrison of his nomination.
The committee met in the parlors of the
Denison hotel at 10 a. m. Hon. M. M.
Estce, of California, was made chairman,
and A. II. Potter, of New Jersey, vice
chairman. At 10:30 the members of the
committee, escourted by the local com
mittee, took carriages and were driven
to General Harrison's residence, where
they were received by Russell Harrison
and Capt. M. G. McLane. The mem
bers of the committee were escorted into
the handsomely decorated parlor and
were seated in a semicircle. At 12 o'clock
General and Mrs. Harrison, accompanied
by Mrs. J. N. Huston and Mrs. John
C. New, entered the parlor and took a po
sition facing the.'committee. General Har
rison looked pale and cars-worn, his ex
pression being one of deep seriousness.
Chairman Estee stepped forward and
said: "General Harrison, we are com
missioned by the national republican con
vention to officially notify you of your
nomination as the republican candidate
for president of the United States. In
doing this we may be permitted to re
mind you that your selection met the
hearty approval of the whole convention
It left no embittered feeling for luke
warm supporters, and its action voiced
the average and best judgment of the
convention. Nor was your nomination
due to accident or the result of hasty or
inconsiderate deliberation. It indicated
that you possessed in a most eminent de
gree those peculiar qualities which com
mended you to the people's favor. In
the hour of the country's peril you cheer
fully accepted an humble poiition in the
army, went wtiere your country most
needed you, and by long and faithful
service rose to higher commands and re
sumed graver responsibilities. Elected
to the United States senate, your en
lightened and conservative statesmanship
commanded the respect and inspired the
confidence of the American platform
adopted by the American people. The
convention marks out with clearneiu and
precision the cr-ed of the party'
General nanism rose after a moment's
thought and amon other remarks said:
41I accept the nomination with so deep
a sen3e of the dignity of the effice and of
the gravi ty of its duties and responsibil
ity as to altogether exclude any feeling
of exultation or pride."
Long and continued applause re-echoed
through the house as Gen. Harrison con
cluded his address, and, reaching forth,
he cordially clasped the extended hand
of Chairman Estee, who t hen presented
him with an official copy of his notification.

A Pleasant Party.
From 1 hursday's Daily.
Mayor Richey invited a Ftnall number
of his intimate friends to assist him in
celebrating yesterday, and the party had
a picnic at his residence which was report
ed t have been a very pleasant event for
all who participated. As a young gentle
man of this city, who has recently gained for
himself quite a reputation as a poet, was
preseut,the following few lines were com
posed and rendered by him for the benefit
of thoe present:
